This is a spectacular forest site situated on the northern slopes of Knocknarea Mountain overlooking Strandhill and Sligo Bay. The sound of the Wild Atlantic waves breaking on the shore line at Strandhill fills the air. Superb views over the sea and the County Sligo countryside can be taken in along the two looped walks.

Rathcarrick forest property is 8km outside of Sligo town. Take the R292 westwards for approximately 4.5 km. Turn left and travel approximately 1.4km. The forest car park will be on your right.
